  1. Reasons to celebrate the 21st Century (in so many ways on temporary global hold just now it seems) are certainly here. Nowhere else do Ratmansky, Wheeldon and Peck do better work. Nowhere. There are also embedded within these 54 minutes (and 33 seconds) some glorious performances to savour. For a moment in Mercurial Movements when the ever exquisite Tiler Peck dashed on I thought it was Patricia McBride reborn in dance. Entirely enervating. The eternally evocative Taylor Stanley - those eyes; those eyes - is mesmeric in 'X' from Ratmansky's witty Russian Dances and how wonderful to be ab
  2. Final Schedule for the NYCB Digital Fall Season '20. (So pleased Abreu is being featured in Water Rite. I have very much enjoyed his dancing.) Schedule Tuesday 27 October at 8pm NEW WORK BY SIDRA BELL pixelation in a wave (Within Wires) Original score by Dennis Bell (pixelation in a wave (Within Wires)) (Commissioned by New York City Ballet) Choreography by Sidra Bell Directed by Ezra Hurwitz Director of Photography Jon Chema Costumes styled by Caitlin Taylor “The exquisitely tenuous correspondence between structural and human forms.” Dancers Ghaleb Kay
  3. The Royal Ballet is Back on Stage and returns for a special live-streamed celebration performance on Friday 9 October at 7.30pm BST. I am assuming this will be via the ROH's Vimeo channel as it is a charged stream @ £16 per household much as the recent opera gala was.
  4. The Royal Opera and Royal Ballet have announced an Autumn/Christmas schedule (including a slightly revised 'Nutcracker') of live events within a socially distanced regime: https://www.roh.org.uk/news/the-royal-opera-house-unveils-programme-of-new-work-alongside-much-loved-classics-for-live-audiences-this-autumn https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/e71f7a7a-ff63-11ea-8388-5bae8b4ec9a9?shareToken=5807070bba5f5e2b38227d896e6a35c8
  5. Saw this listed and thought it might be of interest to some: All Arts: In This Life - Wednesday 8pm EDT / 1am BST (then online) - The terrific dancer Robbie Fairchild has been on an odyssey of self-discovery in the past few years that has taken him, among other things, from New York City Ballet principal to Broadway leading man (An American in Paris) and cinematic Muskustrap (Cats). Now he ventures into the realm of digital short films with In This Life, an exploration of grief that he has co-created with director Bat-Sheva Guez. The piece is divided, à la Kübler-Ross, into five sections
  6. I've just been watching the new set of Alan Bennett 'Talking Heads' on the BBC ... This sentence made me giggle. Perhaps it shouldn't have .. but it did. (Blame 'Bed Among the Lentils' ... I know, I know ... That's old ... but still .... It's hard to beat Maggie Smith ... but Lesley Manville does give it a fair crack.) I could just picture this Washington doyen ... and her darkening roots ... as a subject for Bennett's beady pen. Bennett does isolation ... and rain ... oh, so well ... There's always something sad that lets you smile ... And there she'd lounge blowing yet another longing ki
  7. Strange that ... Perhaps it's just an error ... and they'll send out a modified link later ... A shame really ...
  8. Neither have I. I very much enjoyed both Connection and the Don Q ..... Happily I just received a 'corrected' link ...
  9. Has anyone got the link / password from Pennsylvania Ballet yet? I did register ... but haven't heard anything yet. Perhaps they just release them on the day?
  10. So moving .... Much thanks for tagging this, volcanohunter ...
  11. Thanks for letting us know about this, Dale ... Much appreciated.
  12. I did look down below, California. It seems that they are doing the MacMillan piece last on the triple bill. They give the full cast for it in the YouTube outline. The picture in your freeze is definitely of the MacMillan.
  13. Winter Dreams is a one act ballet by Kenneth MacMillan loosely based on/inspired by Chekhov's Three Sisters ...
  14. Was surprised to find this online - The Royal Ballet's 2017 Cinema Broadcast of Jewels ... (Leave it to the Russians) ... Lamb and McRae are fun in Rubies (great too to see Valentino Zucchetti beaming away in the background) ... and James Hay is oh, so elegant in the Emeralds trio. Sadly Soares (now retired) was just not up to the Diamonds' challenges - which was especially frustrating as Muntagirov had been so spectacular in it and he and Nunez work so well together. A definite missed opportunity ...
